Welcome to the home page of the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild. We are a group of quilters, quilt lovers, fiber artists, fabric collectors, and late-night sewers. We enjoy making quilts, sleeping under quilts, or just looking at quilts. The expertise and support and inspiration we receive from each other make our group one you'll want to belong to. If you would like to find out more about what we do as a group, see the "About Us" link.
